Michael Jung and his own, Bridgitte, and Joachim Jung’s FischerRocana FST (Ituango XX x Rose II) were the final pair into the ring before the lunch break on the first day of dressage competition at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event and laid down a commanding test for a score of 27.1.

“She was good to ride,” said Jung of the 13-year-old German Sport Horse mare. “She was very concentrated and very relaxed; it was nice. I know her well, I know how I have to prepare her. Then on the competition I don’t have to train her too much, I just keep her nice and relaxed and in a good form . . . I just give her a good feeling, that it’s not really special here, that it’s like normal work and she doesn’t have to be scared about something.”

Tamra Smith and Wembley (Lester x E-VIP), Kevin Baumgardner's 15-year-old KWPN gelding, round out the top three at the lunch break on a score of 32.1. “He was really good in there, really rideable and relaxed. It was great . . . He’s been really super; that was his best test. He was so good in there, I couldn’t have asked for him to be better.”

Dressage will resume this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. with Elinor MacPhail O’Neal and RF Eloquence first into the Rolex Arena. Full scores can be found here.
